7 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 15
The Straw House is a huge straw bale farmhouse on a rural property. With plenty of room for large families, a well equipped kitchen, as well as a tranquil setting, far from the madding crowd.
The house is very spacious, with rooms in every direction. All the bedrooms are large and have comfortable beds, and there is space for extra large groups if needed.
Whether you come as a couple or as three families on holiday together, The Straw House will fit your mood. Warm yourself with the wood stove in the winter, and stay cool in summer thanks to the wonderful insulating qualities of straw bale construction.
Sit on the verandah and listen to the birds and the crashing of the waves from Redgate Beach (a 5 minute drive away). Look across the vines and olive trees to magnificent bush, with towering karri trees picking up the light of the westeri...

Great eight days on the farm with extended family (10 adults and 4 children) while celebrating our son's marriage. Kids loved being able to feed the pig our scraps, plenty of room to run around and ever obliging landlords who kept smiling even when we locked ourselves out of one of the bedrooms!! Fabulous place for a family holiday. more
